Turandot – Metropolitan Opera At Lincoln Center: Brunch At Marseille

May 7 @ 8:30 am - 6:15 pm


Mara Aderly-O’Kelly, professional opera singer and lifelong learning instructor will share her passion and knowledge on a trip to the Met. Giacomo Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi. Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano. Conductor Arturo Toscanini oversaw Alfano’s contribution and led the world premiere. Start the day with a delicious lunch at Marseille – a Tour & Talk favorite French brasserie. Estimated run time: 3 hours, 15 minutes. Seats rear orchestra.
